Black Bean Soup with Cotija Cornbread Croutons

    20 Mins
    4-8 Hrs depending on your slow cooker time
    Serves 6-8

Going to a football game is super fun. It’s exciting to watch the game in real time with the crowd going wild, cheering on your team (especially when they are winning). And of course hangin’ in the parking lot tailgating before the game is a blast too. But it is almost just as fun having everyone over to watch, in comfort, on the couch and that way I can make all my favorite foods too.

A big pot of soup is always a good idea. I like to make soup in the slow cooker early in the day and then it is ready to go by game time. This creamy black bean soup is perfect for a crowd. It is super easy to throw together, just put it all in the ingredients in the slow cooker and leave it to simmer away. It is vegetarian, but fortified with thick Crema Salvadoreña it is hearty and filling and satisfies even the biggest of meat lovers.

I like to make lots of garnishes like cheesy Cotija cornbread croutons, avocado slices, lime wedges, cilantro leaves, and extra cheese so everyone can make each bowl of soup their own.

Extra bonus if there is some leftover for lunch the next day!
